Geography Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Geography Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Geography Keywords’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Year 8 2018 Why Choose Geography Options Lesson

This lesson has been tweaked to encompass the lack of a link with Geography and careers with the students in our school. The main activity involves a worksheet that shows students a diversity of different careers stemming from two teachers within my department (myself and another). It is hoped that this increases students choosing Geography for GCSE. The lesson is as follows: Settler: Why choose Geography video Homework: Students are given links to research roles within Geography and with what has been completed in Geography, Starter: What is included in OCR B GCSE Geography. Main: Hurricane experience as part of Global Hazards unit of work with Tweet activity. Main (2): Careers activity based on university graduates from two teachers in Geography with worksheet. Development: Trips completed in Geography. Plenary: Questions.
